It is fairly safe to say that Sex Education and Ted Lasso are not horror movies.
Anything but in fact – the former is a dramedy that takes a honest and heartwarmingly brutal look at what it is like to come of age, sexually and otherwise, while the latter is a quick-witted, heartfelt drama with lots of clever humour woven in.
So, not remotely scary then.
